William Lloyd Garrison went to a "Parker gathering and festival" at Walden Pond, where he met Samuel Joseph May, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Amos Bronson Alcott. Samuel Joseph May read him a chapter from his forthcoming book on slavery and the American churches. William L. Garrison will attend a suffrage convention for women in Newburyport. John Greenleaf Whittier will be present and Julia Ward Howe is to speak. Garrison thinks Lucy Stone is the most effective speaker on women's suffrage in the country. Garrison condemns Horace Bushnell's book on women's suffrage and praises John Stuart Mill's book on the same subject. He doubts if the £2000 testimonial gift for George Thompson will be raised.
